Why Eco-Psychology?

     Eco-Psychology is a shortened term for Ecosystem Psychology. It is not a scientific term nor a study. It is a personificative term, we, the students, have coined.

     Ecosystem as we know is the union of the organisms and abiotic factors in an area.

     If psychology is the study of human and animal behavior, then eco-psychology is the interpretation and understanding of the environment and ecosystem.

     The students of today are in a great need to learn more about psychologizing the ecosystem. As of today, our environment had suffered much and many disasters had occurred. This is because our Mother Nature is very sensitive. Like man, it needs to be sustained with love and care from its inhabitants. But many of us failed to do so and now we are suffering the consequences of our actions.

     As part of a campaign for environmental awareness, we should know further the needs of the environment, why it was damaged, how to bring back its beauty and what we could do or rather should do to prevent further damages. 

 

 

 

Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

 ~Feodor Dostoyevsky
